National CineMedia, Inc. Reports Results for Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2007

Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Feb 28, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- National CineMedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCMI) (the Company), the managing member and owner of 44.8% of National CineMedia, LLC (NCM LLC), the operator of the largest digital in-theatre network in North America, today announced consolidated results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended December 27, 2007.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter 2007 increased 27.5% to $94.5 million from $74.1 million for the comparable quarter last year. Total advertising revenue for the fourth quarter 2007 increased 42.7% to $85.6 million from $60.0 million for the comparable quarter last year. Meetings and events revenue decreased 31.0% to $8.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to $12.9 million in the comparable quarter last year. National advertising inventory utilization for the quarter increased to 104.4% from 93.7% in the comparable quarter last year. Cost per thousand (or CPM) advertising rates increased 2.1% in the quarter compared to the prior year. Net income for the fourth quarter 2007 was $8.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.7 million in the comparable quarter last year.

The Company completed its initial public offering (IPO) of stock and NCM LLC completed its debt financing on February 13, 2007, therefore the historical results prior to the IPO are not comparable to the post-IPO results. The fiscal year ended December 27, 2007 is divided into two periods, pre-IPO from December 29, 2006 through February 12, 2007 for its predecessor NCM LLC, and post-IPO from February 13, 2007 through December 27, 2007 for its consolidated results after the acquisition of its interest in NCM LLC. 2006 CPMs and inventory utilization have been recalculated to conform to the current year presentation.

For the fiscal year ended December 27, 2007, total revenue was $308.3 million for the post-IPO period and $23.6 million for the pre-IPO period, compared to $219.3 million for the full fiscal year ended December 28, 2006. National advertising inventory utilization for fiscal 2007 increased to 87.0% from 77.5% in 2006. CPM advertising rates increased 1.6% compared to the prior year. For the fiscal year ended December 27, 2007 net income for the post-IPO period was $24.8 million and the net loss for the pre-IPO period was $4.2 million, compared to a net loss of $10.5 million for the full fiscal year ended December 28, 2006.

The Company is also pleased to announce today that its Board of Directors has authorized the Company's fourth quarter cash dividend of $0.15 per share of common stock, payable on March 26, 2008, to stockholders of record on March 12, 2008.

Commenting on the Company's 2007 results, Chairman and CEO Kurt Hall said, "During 2007 we exceeded our original expectations with pro forma adjusted EBITDA growth for the year of over 30%. This growth reflected the successful execution of our strategy to increase both the depth and breadth of our client base, expand the geographic reach and coverage of our digital network, and continue to improve the experience for theatre patrons. In 2008, we will continue to further reinforce our market position with the addition of Lowes and Kerasotes screens to our network." Mr. Hall continued, "This strengthening of our theatre network along with our new Internet initiative and other out-of-home digital network platforms that are being incubated will allow us to capture an increasing share of the shift in media spending from traditional media platforms to new digital platforms."

Pro Forma Financial Information

In connection with the completion of the Company's IPO, the Company acquired a 44.8% interest in NCM LLC and the Company and NCM LLC entered into several new agreements (the "IPO Transaction"). The Company and NCM LLC's founding members (AMC, Cinemark and Regal) entered into the amended LLC operating agreement and NCM LLC entered into the restated exhibitor services agreements, the Loews integration agreement with AMC and an $805.0 million senior secured credit facility with a group of lenders, of which $784.0 million was outstanding at December 27, 2007.

In order to facilitate additional comparative analysis between periods, set forth below is pro forma financial information for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2006 and fiscal 2007 that reflect the IPO Transaction as if it had become effective on December 30, 2005. All pro forma amounts exclude payments from AMC associated with the Loews integration agreement as those amounts are recorded directly to the equity accounts. The actual amount related to the Loews integration agreement for the quarter ended December 27, 2007 was $3.7 million and the pro forma amount for the full year period ended December 27, 2007 was $11.7 million.

Pro forma advertising revenue increased 14.6% to $85.6 million from $74.7 million for the comparable quarter last year. Pro forma meetings and events revenue decreased 31.0% to $8.9 million from $12.9 million. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA grew 18.2% to $53.2 million from $45.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2006. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total pro forma revenue increased from 51.4% in the fourth quarter of 2006 to 56.3% in the current quarter. Pro forma net income for the fourth quarter of 2007 grew 18.8% to $8.2 million compared to $6.9 million for the comparable period in 2006. Pro forma earnings per diluted share increased 18.8% to $0.19 per share for the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to $0.16 per share for the fourth quarter of 2006.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures used by management to measure operating performance. EBITDA represents net income (loss) before net interest expense, income tax benefit (provision), and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA severance plan costs, share based payment costs and deferred stock compensation. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on our operating performance and so highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, financial measures. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Pro Forma Non-GAAP Information

The unaudited pro forma financial information for the fiscal year ended December 27, 2007 and the fiscal year ended December 28, 2006 is included for informational purposes only and does not purport to reflect the Company's and NCM LLC's results of operations that would have occurred had they operated as a separate, independent company during the periods presented. The historical results of NCM LLC have been affected by related party transactions as discussed more fully in the Company's public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The pro forma financial information should not be relied upon as being indicative of the Company's and NCM LLC's results of operations had the transactions contemplated in connection with the IPO Transaction been completed on the dates assumed. The pro forma financial information also does not project the results of operations for any future periods. The pro forma information is included because the Company believes it provides the most meaningful basis for comparison between periods.

Notes to the Pro Forma Consolidated Statements of Operations:

1. Contractual adjustments represent the increase to advertising revenue to reflect the pro forma assignment from the founding members to NCM LLC of all legacy advertising contracts in accordance with the amended exhibitor services agreements, based on the actual revenue generated from those legacy contracts and the reversal of the related legacy contract administrative fees historically recorded by NCM LLC. Legacy advertising contracts are those contracts signed by RCM and NCN prior to the formation of NCM LLC. In addition, adjustments include the pro forma effect of the revenue from the sale of additional theatre advertising inventory to the founding members, in accordance with the exhibitor services agreements, in order for the founding members to fulfill their beverage concessionaire agreement on-screen advertising commitments. Contractual adjustments also include the change in circuit share payments pursuant to the exhibitor services agreements. Under the terms of the prior exhibitor service agreements with the founding members, the circuit share payments were based on varying percentages of advertising revenue. Under the modified exhibitor services agreements, the theatre access fee payments will initially be based on a per attendee and per digital screen calculation.

2. Transaction adjustments represent interest expense, including amortization of deferred financing fees, over the term of the new senior secured credit facility of approximately $0.5 million per quarter or $1.9 million per year. Interest expense also includes the impact of an interest rate hedge agreement covering approximately 75% of the outstanding balance on the term loan. In addition, an adjustment to reflect minority interest expense is included, net of income tax expense/(benefit), resulting from the founding members' ownership of approximately 55.2% of the NCM LLC common membership units outstanding immediately after the offering. Transaction adjustments also include adjustments necessary to reflect federal and state income taxes on the income allocated from NCM LLC to NCM Inc., including amortization of the payable related to the tax sharing agreement of approximately $2.8 million per quarter or $11.3 million per year.

3. Basic earnings per share is calculated on the assumption that the 42,000,000 shares sold in the offering are outstanding over the entire period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated assuming that the unit option shares, as converted and unvested shares of restricted stock are outstanding during periods corresponding to their original issuance date (after application of the treasury stock method). The convertible common membership units of the founding members (which aggregate 51,850,951 shares) are not included as they are antidilutive, due to inclusion in interest expense of non-cash amortization of the tax payable to founding members which is not deducted by the LLC.

Non-GAAP Reconciliations (Pro Forma)
Unaudited ($ in millions)

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA margin (Pro forma)
EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP
 financial measures used by management to measure operating
 performance. EBITDA represents net income (loss) before net interest
 expense, income tax benefit (provision), and depreciation and
 amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA severance
 plan costs and share based payment costs and deferred stock
 compensation. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing
 adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and
 adjusted EBITDA margin are important supplemental measures of
 operating performance because they eliminate items that have less
 bearing on our operating performance and so highlight trends in our
 core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely
 on generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, financial
 measures. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these
 presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled
 measures of other companies.

The following table reconciles pro forma net income to pro forma
 EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented:
